You did it for page hits, you greedy fark. Don't pretend you had some kind of noble purpose, you're just an asshole.

Clickbait writer who was doing anything for ad dollars realizes that his stupid shiat may have helped fark over the whole country.

Hang the f#cker.

I'm not even joking.

I wonder how his life has been made worse since saying that, and I wonder why he would bring the whole matter up again to the press.

Fine. Take your site down, donate the profits you made towards a school system (a REAL one, not the Betsy DeVos kind), and start working to educate people in the future. It'll take a long ass time to pay back your fark up, but you seem young enough to try.
 
2017-02-17 07:47:24 AM  
Ummm... Unless I'm reading this wrong he is only apologizing for the comment about getting Trump elected. Not actually helping get Trump elected or explicitly lying to people.

Feels precariously close to an "I'm sorry you were offended" apology.

DIAF you POS. Do the world a favor and kill yourself.

Who?

Fake Author
 
2017-02-17 07:53:55 AM  
He's just sorry that now people know he's part of the reason

"Horner said he also has no regrets about posting the made-up stories saying he is "proud" of his work"

Hey a fake news article about a fake news writer from a fake news site. Clever!

Gah! 'Fake News', 'ALT Facts', can we just go back to calling this stuff bullshiat please? I liked it better when it was just bullshiat, bullshiat was a great phrase, it had gravitas, you could say it with vehemency, it worked! You can't say these new fangled euphemisms with passion.

"Horner, who has been writing fake news bullshiat for the past six years"

See how much better that works?

I want bullshiat back dammit! lets make it great again.

He got us a Trumpy

It doesn't have to be a lynch mob, nor even public spectacle. But this guy IS dangerous, and should be neutralized.

Absolutely not! It should only take a couple people, maybe three, tops.

*rolls eyes* While people should be responsible in what they're posting and the impact it's having on the dumb masses, he's not directly responsible for Trump. If people take everything they read as fact, they're the problem. He's only a symptom of the real problem.

Your idea is to continue to take dayquil (treating the symptoms) instead of finding a cure.
 
2017-02-17 09:51:27 AM  
Pretty sure there is some academic research out there that says genuinely "fake" news did not influence the election.  The moment it really broke against Hillary was the "basket of deplorables" statement and the only thing that kept it a somewhat close race was the pussygrabber tape also surfaced.

I continue to remind y'all that one of the hallmarks of a psychopath is the lack of a conscience.
 
2017-02-17 10:46:50 AM  
Yeah, guy's a sociopath at best. Might as well have a conversation with a die-hard Trumper. Nothing here will change, he just wants you to feel what he wants you to feel.

/Christ, what an asshole.

There is a lot of crap in the lay media. The conditions are well defined and studied in great detail by actual medical scientists. But, mostly they don't rite to gud and use their own language.
This isn't too bad.

"Sociopaths tend to be nervous and easily agitated. They are volatile and prone to emotional outbursts, including fits of rage. They are likely to be uneducated and live on the fringes of society, unable to hold down a steady job or stay in one place for very long. It is difficult but not impossible for sociopaths to form attachments with others. Many sociopaths are able to form an attachment to a particular individual or group, although they have no regard for society in general or its rules. In the eyes of others, sociopaths will appear to be very disturbed. Any crimes committed by a sociopath, including murder, will tend to be haphazard, disorganized and spontaneous rather than planned.
Psychopaths, on the other hand, are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain people's trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people. Psychopaths are often well educated and hold steady jobs. Some are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature."

To be fair to him, just because somebody tells you to vote for a lunatic doesn't mean you have to.

I mean, don't get me wrong, this asshole deserves a good hard kick in the junk, but ultimately the stupid assholes who voted for Joffrey are responsible.

We should be saving most of our fully justified hate for them.

This should be good.

"I truly regret my comment about saying that I think Donald Trump is in the White House because of me," Paul Horner said Wednesday night in a text message.

Ok.

Horner, who has been writing fake news for the past six years,

Fark off and die. The only thing you regret is you farked your meal ticket. You don't regret your work, you regret admitting to it publicly.
 
2017-02-17 11:55:17 AM  
How does one claim to be satire and claim to be trying to trick people out of voting for Trump at the same time.  Me thinks when both side blew up at him he decided the anti Trump-ers are way scarier.
